Atlanta wins with Felicia Moore/Andre Dickens run-off 

It’s a new day for the City of Atlanta.

The two of 14 mayoral candidates to advance to the Nov. 30 run-off will be Felicia Moore, president of the Atlanta City Council, and Andre Dickens, an at-large city councilman. Moore garnered 41 percent of the vote, and Dickens managed to edge out former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed for that second run-off spot by only 612 votes.

In other words, the “Kasim cloud” over Atlanta has lifted. The city can now begin to enjoy a new spirit of leadership at Atlanta’s City Hall no matter who wins.

Since the end of the Great Recession, few matters seem to garner greater bipartisan consensus than the fact that we are in the midst of a national affordable housing crisis. Calling it an affordable housing crisis, however, does not fully define the problem. Certainly, if thousands of new affordable housing units were suddenly developed on the least desirable and inaccessible land in any city in an effort to eliminate the deficit in affordable housing units, thoughtful individuals would not think we have resolved the crisis.
